St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - A St. Louis man is in custody, accused of holding a woman captive for three months and repeatedly sexually assaulting her.

The Post-Dispatch reports that Clifton Wilkes is charged with sodomy, kidnapping, rape, assault, and several misdemeanors.

Police say that the victim went to Wilkes' apartment on October 15. She told investigators that she woke up the next day in his bedroom. She was missing her pants and the door to the room was locked. The victim says that over the next three months she was raped, choked, and punched. She was beaten so severely that she lost a tooth.

The Post-Dispatch reports that the victim was able to escape the house on Wednesday. She ran to a neighbor's home for help, but Wilkes broke in and took her back to his apartment. 

Wilkes is now held on a $500,000 bond.

Nixon sets August vote for vacant Missouri House seats

Saturday, 01 February 2014 09:02 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Governor Jay Nixon has set an August 5th special election to fill three vacant Missouri House seats.

Nixon announced the House election dates Friday, but he did not call for a vote to replace Senator Ryan McKenna, who he appointed in December as the state labor director.

The 120th House District has been vacant since Republican Jason Smith of Salem resigned in June upon winning a special election to Congress.

The two other House seats opened up in December. Democratic Representative Steve Webb, of Florissant, resigned while facing criminal charges. Republican Representative Dennis Fowler of Advance resigned when Nixon appointed him to the state Board of Probation and Parole.

The special election announcements come as Nixon is facing a lawsuit seeking to compel him to call the elections.

Judge convicts Missouri shooting plot suspect

Friday, 31 January 2014 16:41 Published in Local News
BOLIVAR, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri man accused of plotting shooting attacks at a movie theater and a Walmart has been found guilty.
 
Polk County Prosecutor Ken Ashlock said Blaec Lammers was convicted Friday of first-degree assault and armed criminal action. Judge William Roberts on Thursday threw out a charge of making a terrorist threat. Lammers agreed to allow a judge to hear the case without a jury present.
 
Ashlock said Lammers told authorities he originally planned to open fire on the opening-night crowd for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" at a Bolivar theater in November 2012. He then opted for the Walmart because he could get more ammunition there.
 
Lammers was arrested after his mother told police she feared he was planning an attack.
 
Sentencing is scheduled for March 20.
